And Swansea will be hoping to defy all odds against the Red Devils to book a place in the quarter-finals of the English League Cup. On Saturday afternoon, Paul Clement's Swansea side lost 2-1 at home to managerless Leicester City.

The 22-year-old has not played for the first team since a substitute appearance in the Carabao Cup third round against Championship side Burton Albion on September 20. That result has left them down in 15th position in the table - level on points with 18th-placed Everton after nine matches of the season. Paul Clement's side have been shockingly bad at home, a big surprise as their home form was what saved them from relegation last season. The over in 3-0-0 in Manchester United's league cup games this year, the over is 3-0-1 in Swansea's league cup games this year.

Along with Bony, Swansea will also be without Bayern Munich loanee and Portugal worldwide Renato Sanches, like Bony, the midfielder will miss Tuesday's clash with a thigh injury. The glory came in 2012/13 where the Swans dismissed the fourth tier side, Bradford City 4-0.

As for United, Mourinho is expected to ring the changes from the clash with Huddersfield.

Manchester United provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Pereira, Valencia, Darmian, Tuanzebe, Lindelof, Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Young, Matic, Herrera, McTominay, Mata, Lingard, Mkhitaryan, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial. Although veteran midfielder Nemanja Matic is hoping for a rest, the Serbian worldwide could start in a weakened United midfield.

As for United's absentees, the Red's will be without Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Michael Carrick, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Marouane Fellaini and Marcos Rojo.

As mentioned, neither team would have listed the EFL Cup as high on their list of priorities this season.
